BALANCING FUN AND ORDER
By Toni Collier

If there’s one thing I can’t deny about my four-year-old Dylan, it’s that she likes to have fun. It’s an essential part of her day. She’s the kid that asks what we’re doing and where we’re going every five minutes just to make sure that every nanosecond of the day, fun is present. 
Every kid is wired for fun. But as parents, we know that we also have to be consistent with order so that we can one day stare into the eyes of our kind, responsible, loving adults.
I am absolutely the parent that leans towards order and discipline in my home. I’m always questioning if my daughter is getting the right amount of order that will help her become a kind, responsible, and loving adult. Maybe others lean more towards the fun side. Here are a few ways that I’ve found helps me stay in a healthy balance of both . . .

THIS WEEK IN INSIDEOUT:

BOTTOM LINE:
The church is where we worship and serve God together.

OBJECTIVE:
Kids will think of ways they can serve in their church.

KEY PASSAGE:
Acts 4:32-35, The Believers Share Everything

MEMORY VERSE:
“We know that “We all have knowledge.” But knowledge makes people proud, while love builds them up. Those who think they know something still don’t know as they should. But whoever loves God is known by God.” 1 Corinthians 8:1b-3 (NIRV)

HOW TO CONNECT THE LESSON WITH YOUR KIDS:
IN THE CAR:
Ask your child what they learned about this week on the drive home: After Jesus returned to Heaven, word spread about Jesus to all the world. His followers established churches everywhere they went, and that still continues today.  Kids will learn about the early church, how they treated each other, and what that means for us today. Acts 4:32-35, The Believers Share Everything

HANGING OUT:
Make this week’s lesson real: Are there some things at home you can take to church to share? Cans for the soup kitchen? Coats for the clothing closet? Anything else?

AT DINNER:
Here are some great discussion starters:
- Why were there no needy people in the early church?
- How do you think our church does at sharing?
- What is something we can do to be more sharing and giving at church?

AT BEDTIME:
Quiz your child on this week’s memory verse: “We know that “We all have knowledge.” But knowledge makes people proud, while love builds them up. Those who think they know something still don’t know as they should. But whoever loves God is known by God.” 1 Corinthians 8:1b-3 (NIRV)

PARENT TIME:
What you need to know: A church united can make a great impact on its community and the world. If you’re not serving or sharing somewhere in the church, ask God to help you find a place you can serve. Set an example for your kids in service, sharing, and love.

COMING SOON: 



Palm Sunday Event for Families
Children will have the opportunity to participate in our 9:45 AM worship service through various activities like waving palm branches, reading scripture, or singing in our preschool choir.  More information will be sent home about ways every kid can join in!

Following worship (11:00 AM to Noon), families will join us in the Multi-Purpose Building for an inspiring journey through Easter week where kids will learn more about Palm Sunday, the last supper, the sacrifice of Good Friday, and the celebration of the empty tomb.  This kid-friendly atmosphere is for preschool and older children alike and will include snacks, crafts, and other activities meant to capture their imagination and engage families with the spiritual truth that Jesus loves each of us.

Sunday

Preteen Parent Cue Mar. 17-23

THIS WEEK IN SUNDAY SCHOOL:
WEEK THREE
1 TIMOTHY 4:12
Timothy
ASK THIS:
How can you make
a difference right now?
DO THIS:

BED TIME


Read Luke 15:1-7. Who do you think the lost sheep in Jesus’ story is supposed to be? The lost sheep could be any one of us! No matter how “good” we are, we’ve all made mistakes. But no matter what you’ve done or how far you stray, God is always quick to find you. He will forgive anything the moment you ask. Pray that you will remember each day that God loves you so much—no matter how you feel or what you’ve done.
REMEMBER THIS:
"How you made me is amazing and wonderful. I praise you for that.
What you have done is wonderful. I know that very well."
Psalm 139:14, NIrV

HOW TO COMMUNICATE IN A WAY
THAT VALUES YOUR RELATIONSHIPS

By Carey Nieuwhof



I think it's kind of fun that God puts families into a little box called a home—where they bump into each other daily for years on end—and tells them to love each other. Nice experiment.
It's always amazed me that many of us have a tendency to communicate least graciously with the people who are closest to us. When you are in close quarters, small irritants often become large issues, and we end up speaking to our family in a way we would never communicate with anyone else. And who are we often most kind toward? Perfect strangers. Go figure.
How we communicate is as or more important than what we communicate. I'm not saying truth doesn't matter (it does), but isn't it true that sometimes you can say exactly the right thing in precisely the wrong way? . . .
